Truth and Reconciliation - Purcell Collegiate School


The school’s relationship with the ?aq’am Community is articulated in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

This MOU guides existing and future engagement efforts between the parties and is supportive of pioneering a collaborative and mutually-beneficial partnership that distinguishes the school as a learning opportunity for students and elevates it as a social impact incubator and economic development generator in support of the Truth and Reconciliation process and as a lighthouse project toward a decolonized future.

At Purcell Collegiate School we work in support of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s 94 Calls to Action and in recognition of the United Nations Declaration on Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

Our goal is to engage collaboration in a meaningful way and to support ongoing efforts to maximize Purcell Collegiate School as a vehicle for Truth and Reconciliation and toward a decolonized future for Canada.

As such, Purcell Collegiate will work with the ʔaq’am Community to continually adopt and implement those calls and articles that can be actioned and applied by Purcell Collegiate School students and staff.
